Our team has responded to a call from the City of Boston to get urban female youth more actively engaged in and have equal access to sport programming. By following our global mission of educating and inspiring at-risk youth through basketball, we have partnered with Boston Public and Charter schools to launch Getting Girls in the Game, a free sport-for-development program open to all Boston inner city girls.
